As a family-owned company with many years of experience producing signs for schools and school notice boards, we can help you every step of the way.
Our audit service is backed by many years of experience and guided by five main criteria – footfall, directional flow, security, message/purpose of the sign and the likelihood of vandalism/abuse.
We work with a wide variety of clients requiring school signage ranging from Local Authorities, LEAs, church schools, children’s centres and academies as well as friends groups, trusts, designers and contractors. Our team will provide you with a clear idea of what your proposed new school signs or school notice board will look like so that you can present them to your wider stakeholders.

Outdoor Notice Boards for Schools
Our notice boards for schools are produced in either powder-coated aluminium or in timber, with our recommended option being Accoya.
This kind of school signage is usually hinged, lockable, glazed with shatterproof polycarbonate and with either a magnetic or pinboard backer. With in-house production at Shelley Signs, the specification of most school notice boards can be personalised to suit your requirements.
External notice boards for schools can be supplied with posts for either wall mounting or bolting to fences or railings.
Usually, this type of school sign is fitted within the school grounds, and often for primary schools can also be produced in timber.
Internal School Notice Boards
Indoor school notice boards used indoors are a great alternative to traditional school signage, making it easier to communicate with staff and students. They can be used to post upcoming events, remind staff of deadlines, or share important news.
At Shelley Signs, we produce lockable noticeboards for internal use, as well as open pinboards, available with an external grade cork board these can be supplied with either timber (Accoya) or durable aluminium frames. These are ideal when the graphics are frequently updated, such as a school notice board.

Frequently Asked Questions
Schools are filled with all sorts of signage, from the obvious ones like stop signs and exit signs to the more subtle ones like bathroom symbols. Probably the most common school signage is warning signs. This includes things like keep-out signs, no-trespassing signs, and no-smoking signs. These signs are necessary in order to keep students safe and protect school property. Another common type of signage in schools is directional signage. This includes things like hallway arrows and classroom numbers. This type of signage is necessary in order to help students find their way around the school. Finally, another common type of signage in schools is informational signage. This includes things like rules and expectations posters, cafeteria menus, and emergency procedures posters.
School notice boards can be either wall-mounted or post-mounted, whether they are made of aluminium or timber (see below). We strongly recommend mounting vertically, rather than at a lectern frame angle, as the latter can lead to problems with condensation.
Post-mounted external school notice boards are ideal if you need to stand your noticeboard away from a building, such is the case with primary schools. Post-mounted notice boards are free-standing, secure & weatherproof. Available in wood or aluminium, and with sunken or surface posts to suit ground requirements.
Wall-mounted external noticeboards are available with single and double door. All boards have shatterproof glazing and security locks. Available in a wide range of sizes, frame colours and external wall fittings suitable for your requirements. Bespoke sizes are available on request.
